Description

The acclaimed biography—now updated and revised. "Many writers have tried to probe [Dylan's] life, but never has it been done so well, so captivatingly" (The Boston Globe). Howard Sounes's Down the Highway broke news about Dylan's fiercely guarded personal life and set the standard as the most comprehensive and riveting biography on Bob Dylan. Now this edition continues to document the iconic songwriter's life through new interviews and reporting, covering the release of Dylan's first #1 album since the seventies, recognition from the Pulitzer Prize jury for his influence on popular culture, and the publication of his bestselling memoir, giving full appreciation to his artistic achievements and profound significance. Candid and refreshing, Down the Highway is a sincere tribute to Dylan's seminal place in postwar American cultural history, and remains an essential book for the millions of people who have enjoyed Dylan's music over the years. "Irresistible . . . Finally puts Dylan the human being in the rocket's red glare." —Detroit Free Press
